Jesus offers us a more inclusive way to view the world. He says, “Whoever is not against us is for us.” (Mark 9:38-43,45,47-48) What difference this perspective makes on the way we see the world and the way we interact with those around us! All of a sudden the world is filled with companions, friends, and actual or potential allies.
Who needs to belong to an exclusive club or circle of friends when we could have a great family of friends and companions to share our journey and our mission? Ask yourself, how much more optimistic and less judgmental is this way of life and service to our Lord?
- Deacon Robert
We ought to say to God: “I can do nothing of myself.
I can only give you my desire to love you. Here it is!
O my god, uphold me and do all yourself.”
